  1. Has no one realised that you can still watch Belarus League football??? In an incredible turn of events Neman beat Vitebk 2-0. Crazy result! This was obviously eclipsed yesterday when Dynamo Brest thumped Slutsk 1-0. Absolutely incredible- the worlds gone mad. As the Belarus authoritarian/dictator President says: " There is no Corona Virus if you drink vodka and do farm work". (*) Thank goodness for football and all those involved in making such great decisions. (*) he really did say that.
  2. I think for the Mods to 'takeaway Chinese' comments is plump with humour yet also makes me feel hungry.
  3. Were you there that one time when the Milwall fans just poured in, chinned a couple of locals , turned over a couple of tables and just ran our again? It was a surreal experience because it seemed to happen in slow motion yet was about 10 seconds from start to finish.
  4. years ago ( 3rd div days) the Landlord used to sell joints of lamb to certain customers on the very cheap-and 'on the quiet'- I bought some now and then after a game- no questions. I've always wondered WTF since that stopped. What the hell was he doing and where the hell did he get them from? ..... probably best not to know thinking about it.
  5. What's your favourite pre/post match footie pub and why? Mine used to be the Try Again in BS3- proper Bristol and usually a great atmosphere. I graduated to the Nova Scotia as it was easy to park near there, lovely looking at the boats/suspension bridge and an enjoyable walk across the train river bridge and Greville Park. Brilliant on a good day and got more exciting as you see The Gate looming before you. These days- it's often The George at Abbots Leigh- lovely old pub and you get a few ( well behaved) away supporters stopping there on way from M5 so you can have a friendly chat. Nice and handy to drive down through Failand and park by David Lloyd. I love pubs and these great places are as vulnerable as an a 93 yr old man with immune deficiency.Thanks to Steve Lansdown our club will survive but these Bristol institutions which have survived just about everything the world can throw at them including bombing may not be so lucky this time around.
  6. What a fantastic gesture by our players on as much as £20,000.00 per week (or more) to donate a small proportion of their salary ( which gets paid no matter what) to a help and assistance fund for the elderly and/or vulnerable long term loyal City fans to help ensure they get the provisions they need to get through this crisis. A wonderful gesture to those people who have supported City through thick and thin over decades despite their own personal circumstances. Or did I just make this up because that's what I'd most like to happen?
  7. A lot of posters agreed with you in November.
  8. Absolutely. The danger of signing a player on huge wages who may or may not make a full recovery long term is enormous. We don't know if there was a pre-agreed fee set by Stoke- I suspect his value has somewhat diminished. It's very emotive for us fans because Benik is a hugely likeable man who just seems to have become part of our club. If we don't sign him and he does well elsewhere - Mark Ashton will never be forgiven. If we do sign him and he becomes a sick note- Mark Ashton will never be forgiven. I'm not sure if this would be a good bit of business unless the price and wages are right and risk managed.
  9. so you self identify as a sheep? Soo disappointed....
  10. I'm sure as well because that's exactly what I did. Although at least there is a basis of fact however flawed unlike rumours on this site which become FACT in nano-seconds.
  11. Well here's for some statistics: For every post you make Robbo- about one third of readers like what you have to say. For every post @Redpoolmakes- it appears that 100% likes what he's saying. #awkward
  12. Blimey Robbo- I never made the connection that all footie fans are fickle not just me. Good spot, sir!. How about a new chant/ song for match days ? Something along the lines of " We only sing when we're winning"? It might just catch on.
  13. Anyone on OTIB who is even remotely disappointed that a tiny minority boo a home grown one of our own players who BCFC made a fortune from have clearly missed the Steve Lansdown is "part of the problem" nonsense and the acerbic vitriolic personal abuse of a Manager who's actually doing better than any City Manager at this level since before 1982 when we went tits up.
  14. Nonsense He's awful Why can't all of you just get over Matt Smith? It's like we're gonna end up with a Matt Smiff Stand or a statue. Jeez.
  15. The best quote is by the EP "McFadzean has had a stellar career in the Football League" Bloody hell- how did I miss that? Maybe I was on holiday that week.
  16. Certainly not! Our club is rubbish We're relegation fodder Lee Johnson is the ground zero of Coronovirus There's nothing to appreciate Let's all boo Possibly we should celebrate a club which some of us support, celebrate we got over 1982 , celebrate we're not Bury, celebrate Lansdown's support, celebrate the "overall" direction of travel and most of all celebrate THE MASSIVE GAP.
  17. Ha! Along with the players who only get paid even more and only when they're winning....right?
  18. never in the field of football conflict has so much nonsense been spouted by so many about so few.
  19. IMO, to be top scorer with 6 assists at an Oldham club that is facing administration is better experience, maturity and confidence than another season in the U23's with a rare first team cameo could ever do. As far as coaching goes surely his record this season suggests that the coaching at Oldham is of benefit? He'll now have done 2 seasons at L2 level and one would hope he's done/ shown enough to start knocking at the door of our first team otherwise there will be plenty of clubs knocking at his.
  20. Well....fortunately Joe- it wasn't up to you! The development of JS is steady and incremental and this season at Oldham is guaranteed to do wonders for him. He would not have gained enough experience having previously only had one full season playing League football at Tranmere to have had much chance here this season. His time is coming. I hope it's with BCFC.
